Moers Festival Interviews: Sana Nagano

Read "Moers Festival Interviews: Sana Nagano" reviewed by Martin Longley


Right place, right time, your scribe caught Smashing Humans playing a late night set at the original Nublu club in NYC's Alphabet City, 19th April 2019. Intensity ensued, via a serrated prog-jazz extremity, sharply sculpted in its dynamic schizoid turning of sharp bends, its abrasive surface causing exciting distress.
